The Honduran Congress has demanded an apology from Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for calling a Honduran cardinal an "imperialist clown." Chavez was responding to criticism from Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga, who said in a recent interview cited by Venezuela's Bolivarian News Agency that Chavez "thinks he's God and can trample upon other people." Juan Hernandez, a legislator with Honduras' opposition National Party, said Wednesday that Congress voted overwhelmingly late Tuesday to demand President Manuel Zelaya "ask for an apology from Mr. Chavez for the offenses directed against the cardinal and the Honduran people."
